Fingerprint Requirement for Renewal Applicants Repealed

On February 18, 2015, Governor Ducey signed SB 1149 into law. The law accomplishes two main goals-it clears the way for the Board to obtain FBI approval to conduct background checks for initial applicants and repeals the background check requirement for existing licensees. The law became effective immediately.

The Board will continue to work with the FBI to obtain final approval for the fingerprinting program, but our immediate priority will be updating the expiration dates for qualified renewal applicants as soon as possible. Effective February 19, 2015, Board staff began the process of updating files. Licensees may check to see if their license expiration has been updated by reviewing their Physician Profile on the Board website. Our goal is to have this task completed no later than Monday of next week. Thank you for your patience, as we work through the most recent changes to our licensing requirements, as enacted by the Legislature.
